GET LAMP: Robert Pinsky
Nick Montfort, prominent in GET LAMP itself, was also a big advisor behind the scenes of the whole film (any re-issues are going to credit him for it). He gave me advice on subjects, listened to the raw interviews and asked about themes, and in some cases, was able to get me in touch with people I'd really have had no hope of reaching. One of these was Robert Pinsky, poet laureate of the US, who had worked on a game called "Mindwheel" in the 1980s, and who was Nick's professor at BU at one point. Nick made the call, Mr. Pinsky was in the general area, and I drove down to him, where he generously took some time out of his vacation to sit with me. I used him in just a few locations, but he was great - he added a real touch of class to the proceedings.
